Why Don’t Children Regress Before They Turn One?

Regressive Autism has onset of symptoms at 18 months, while Early Onset Autism begins sooner. For years, there was less Regressive Autism than Early Onset Autism in the U.S. -- until the late 70's and early 80's. Since then, Regressive Autism has steadily risen, and it now represents around 80 percent of all autism cases.

The sharp rise in Regressive Autism begins right when the MMR vaccine became widely used in the United States. What's more, as the number of childhood vaccines increased 700 percent from 3 in the 70's to 22 in 2000, the prevalence of autism showed a parallel increase of 700 percent. And babies, almost invariably, do not regress into autism during the current "vaccine break" period between 6 and 12 months of age.

According to Vaccination News:

"Worried about vaccination being blamed for Regressive Autism, the health authorities and vaccine promoters quickly circulated the idea that autism, supposedly a purely 'genetic disorder', manifested itself between 18 and 24 months of age. In time, that somewhat preposterous idea became an accepted scientific fact, even though the syndrome was originally called 'Infantile Autism' ... and an infant is, by definition, a child under the age of 12 months."
